Pearls have been getting around lately, from high fashion catwalks to it-girls’ curated ear stacks and even on the auction block, as a historical treasure of Marie Antoinette’s is slated for sale in November. Many of these pieces are aspirational, but the message is clear: the public wants to see what the pearl can do!

Pearl Whirl

These alluring little orbs have fascinated humans for many hundreds of years. It stands to reason that we’ve gotten quite good at imagining these lustrous lovelies into different designs by now. These designs illustrate the staggering variety that can be packed into as deceptively simple a descriptor as “pearl jewelry.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
